-What kind of canvassing you do: i just started with ACT a few days ago. we're working for progressive candidates at all levels of government. i think it'll be over after election day. but i'd like to continue afterwards.

-What brought you into it: i needed a job, and i thought, get off your ass and change something. so here i am.

-Favorite canvassing story: being new, i don't have many, but the other day, an elderly lady answered the door. she called out "marie?" from her hiding spot behind the door (she was naked), and told my partner (i was observing) that she had been showering just as she knocked. but i guess these things are to be expected.

today one of us was bitten by a dog. he might have rabies. dogs suck.

wow please dont let that dog have rabies. was it a loose dog in the street or at someone's house?

yesterday was the first time i got attacked by a dog, i had to use my clipboard to keep it from biting me, it was kinda scary.

clipboards double as a weapon.

he can actually sue if there wasn't a sign that said "attack dog." even a "beware of dog" sign is nothing. it has to say "attack dog"

just a note :)

ahimsa04: woof?

We had a girl get bitten by a dog in our office (GCI/DNC Milwaukee)... it made for a good story, but it was pretty scary at the time.

And the owner didn't even contribute...
